Conditions on Expedition Ship Deck - Is it Wet??? (Antarctica)

Jump to last reply

Can anyone provide information on the conditions of the ship deck while at sea. I will be traveling to Antarctica this December on the National Geographic Explorer. I know a lot of my time will be spent on the deck when not participating in zodiac landings,kayaking, etc.( provided good weather conditions). I am not one to be cooped indoors, even if it is 30 degrees outdoors. Is the deck wet and slippery from the waves? Can I wear boots or should I stick to tennis shoes. Trying to minimize packing--planning on renting landing boots and having then delivered to the ship. I will probably wear personal boots on the trip to BA. They are more comfortable to travel in and easy enough to wear wear everyday on the ship w/jeans/leggings. The only other pair of shoes I planned on taking is a pair of sandals for walking around Buenos Aires.

Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks!

Robin
